The End of a Smaller Cold War?

By Rufin Zamfir

February 2015

Adevărul

At the end of a trial that lasted for nearly 16 years, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has reached a verdict in the case of genocide claims brought forth by Croatia and Serbia against each other, relating to the armed conflicts of the 90s.

L’Europe Foutue. Liberté with No Egalité or Fraternité

By Oana Popescu

January 2015

Adevărul

The attacks on journalists in Paris are abominable by any standards. But to limit our understanding of the larger context (that has found an extreme expression in this case) and to refuse to accept that we are today expressing ourselves in a tense globalised environment, to which balanced and strong individuals respond in a balanced way, and those imbalanced or weaker respond the way they know best or the way others push them to, is ignorant and irresponsible.

By Oana Popescu

May 2014

Adevărul

Unlike Ukraine, Romania can 100% count on support from the US and NATO, since it is member of the Alliance. Biden sent a firm message to Romanians and the future Cotroceni office holder: Russia no longer fights only with conventional weapons. The US cannot defend what we don’t defend ourselves – the territory of rule of law and anti-corruption.
